Wrong medication dosage leads to woman's death

Most of the time, patients take the medication their doctor prescribes without much thought. These patients assume their doctor has the knowledge and expertise to diagnose a medical condition and choose the appropriate medicine to treat that condition. The expectation is well founded as doctors spend years training and preparing for doing exactly that. Yet, sometimes medical professionals fail to live up to that simple goal and medication errors occur. A recent lawsuit judgment against a hospital highlights the dangers of such mistakes.

Nursing homes are typically thought of as safe places where families can place their loved ones to receive the quality care they need and deserve.

Miami residents who must undergo operations are likely to feel uneasy at the thought of something going wrong. Most of the time, these fears turn out to be just that, with no harm materializing.

Recent disciplinary action taken against a Florida doctor shows the dangers medical malpractice can pose, even for seemingly minor operations.

Unfortunately, nursing home neglect often betrays the trust families have placed in these institutions. A recent jury verdict out of Palm Beach County shows how tragic nursing home neglect can be and how a civil lawsuit can help those who have been harmed.
